Emile Coue, French psychologist and founder of the method of healing through affirmation, said - when the imagination and will power are in conflict, it is always the imagination which wins, without any exception.
If you desire a positive outcome, but the images playing in your mind are of scarcity and failure, your mind will lead you in the direction of failure.
The simple visualization techniques in this book will show you how to change your mental images to reduce stress, improve health, develop skills, and create the outcome you seek.
Well researched, well written, with lots of useful exercises. Visualization is definitely a science and art, and this author does a great job of capturing both.
Although this book is not without its flaws, it is very evident that the author is passionate about the subject and wants to give you as many ways to succeed with it. It is also very evident this person actually practices what he preaches and has gained enough experience with visualization to have worked out the major kinks to smooth the path for other learners...all in a structure and format that is accessible to everyone.
This book is truly a work of genius, and I don't say that lightly. Before this book, I would read at a tortoise pace. Not because that's all I was capable of, but because I never learned how to properly read as an adult. From just reading this book in one pass, I've increased my reading speed by at least 5 times. Not only that, but I retain more information I read because I have to maintain focus and concentration to be able to read so fast.
The tips were all simple and he uses great stories and analogies to help you understand their importance. What I like the most, and what separate this from all the other speed reading books, are the practice drills. Kam gets it, he knows that learning is not what creates change but applying what you learn and these drills help you do that. If you do the drills at the end of each chapter, by the end of the book, you're reading & comprehension will improve.
Even though English is not my native language, this was my first book that I read so fast, with just a couple of tips. I Usually struggle weeks or even months trying to finish a book, and some books that I didn't finish.
The author, Kam Knight, shares a lot of useful concepts. It took a lot of work on his part. I highly recommend this book!
